[Is It Not The Singularity Of Life That Terrifies Us? Is Not The Decisive Difference Between Comedy And Tragedy That Tragedy Denies Us Another Chance? Shakespeare Over And Over Demonstrates Life's Singularity — The Irrevocability Of Our Decisions, Hasty And Even Mad Though They Be. How Solemn And Huge And Deeply Pathetic Our Life Does Loom In Its Once-and Doneness, How Inexorably Linear, Even Though Our Rotating, Revolving Planet Offers Us The Cycles Of The Day And Of The Year To Suggest That Existence Is Intrinsically Cyclical, A Playful Spin, And That There Will Always Be, Tomorrow Morning Or The Next, Another Chance.]

"The two men were greedily hunched over the table, like two wolves disputing a carcass, but their muttered speech in the echoing hall resembled more the grunting of pigs. One was less than a wolf: he was a public prosecutor. The other was more than a pig, he was a chief commissioner of police."

Quotes About Holocaust Survivors

"Children of immigrants or Holocaust survivors often get very different psychological messages from those of children whose families have been established for generations. For example, many Holocaust survivors will never speak to their children or grandchildren about what happened. Nonetheless, the messages of the unspeakable horrors may be transmitted nonverbally to the subsequent generations, and the younger generations can end up with anxiety and PTSD issues without ever hearing the actual stories. The trauma messages can be conveyed unconsciously through looks and gestures." - Author: Daniel G. Amen
